WHO ARE WE?
For the last 11 years Keith and Judy Kowatch have travelled across the US selling cowboy hats at fairs, rodeos and country music festivals. Our experience with the trials of getting products to the right place, at the right time, in good condition and in styles that weren't in every western wear store on the planet led us to create our own new hat line, Gone Country Hats.
Before that we manufactured underbody neon lights for cars and trucks. With more than 2000 dealers and 350 car shows under our belts, it was just time to move on. A friend encouraged us to get into the cowboy hat business by telling us all we needed to know was "The big hats are on the top of the stack and the smaller hats are on the bottom" and "That hat looks pretty good on you."
It didn't take long to figure out there was a little more to it than that, but it has been a fun ride and we've seen a lot of country and met a lot of great people along the way. At times we've had help from our family and quite a few business cats. We also have our second team, Mick and Lorie, on the road and George in the warehouse.
The pictures on our website are of real customers taken at our events. Want to see yourself on our site? Take a picture in one of our hats and send it to Judy@maverickhats.com.
